    emilee- hahaha you’re not weird at all. that’s exactly how i feel. i had Ella when I was 20, also. And i just turned 21 two weeks ago and haven’t gone out for it. I just don’t think it’s that important. I just went out to dinner with family and brought her. I do everything with her, and if she can’t come i don’t go. First i do not want to leave her. Second, i just don’t feel the need to drink. I would feel awful if she happened to wake in the night when i got home and i couldn’t nurse her. I couldn’t imagine. People kept making jokes to me about giving her ‘white russians’ (alcohol with her milk). I didn’t think it was a very funny joke. Whatever, though. I love being with her all the time. I don’t know. Don’t get me wrong, it’s hard to be with her (alone most of the time, with minimal help from Daddy) all the time sometimes, you get tired and you need a break, but i just deal. I’d rather do it myself and know that i haven’t missed anything than have her with someone else. i guess we’re weird!! But i like it. =]

    Yup, I used all my sick and vaca when I went on leave with Chris too. I took 3 months off but only like 3 weeks were paid because that’s all I had.

    I’m open to suggestions on how to get my little man to eat healthy. He’s 13 months and his diet has slowly declined to cheerios, whole grain gold fish, cheese, and sometimes bean&grain bread, banana, broccoli, and watermelon. I’m a super healthy eater and this is frustrating me to no end. I’m hoping he will grow out of it, but I can’t/won’t force him to eat my food options. I always start out with healthier options but it ends with him throwing a tantrum in his chair and me giving into one of the aforementioned foods. I can’t stand the thought of him being hungry. Any one else with picky eaters or picky eaters that just sort of outgrew it?

    Here we are at 4 am,,,,woke up because I felt Zoey burning up next to me. She’s only 102.1 but I still feel like that is pretty warm. That’s taken under the arm, added a degree. I can’t find the rectal thermometer and her dad has the forehead thermometer at his house. He’ll be up in a couple of hours though, so I’m going to try not to panic (first fever) and wait till he can bring me the other thermometer. Everything I can read on here says not to panic. She’s nursing fine, screamed when I tried to give her a bottle (she took one fine earlier while visiting my sister…and I felt like my supply was low at 4 because she kept fussing and making me switch sides like she does when the flow isn’t what she wants it to be). Tell me not to panic!

    Ollie’s injections were for dipheria, tetanus, whooping cough, polio then the other one was for pneumococcal meningitis. The meningitis one is supposed to sting when it goes in. He barely cried when he got them. Then last night he started to scream he didn’t have a temperature. But think he had a headache. The only thing that would settle him was if i walked around the room singing to him, he wouldn’t even take the boob. He gets them again in 4 weeks but its meningitis c that time. Then another lot 4 weeks after that. Then nothing until 12 months. What injections do your kids get?

    aci-my mom was so worried about me producing enough (she was a ff) but as long as you do all the right stuff (ie no artificial nipples, no formula, throw away the clock on long feeds and short feed alike) for the first 4-6 weeks your body will produce enough. just remember your production is based off of supply and demand. if your baby is demanding it your body will supply it. also don’t let negitive talk get you down. i was given two cans of powdered formula b/c there was no way i was going to make it a full year. well i did so ha!

    I feel so darn far away up in Bothell. We’re by Thrasher Corner if you have any idea where that is. HAHA! Close to the top of 405.

    deeyore486 – You are so right. If an adult was 5ft nothing people would just he’s short. They wouldn’t be doing a butt load of testing and changing the diet. It’s silly. These kids are all HUMAN BEINGS! If we were all meant to grow the same way then we would all be the same height and weight as adults.

    I have a question for you ladies. I have terrible back pain that I think is related to my pregnancy and nursing. I try to position myself so that I’m not hunched over (if sitting) or so that my spine is aligned correctly (when I’m laying down) I use pillows between my legs and behind my back, etc.. My back pain is progressively getting worse and worse. I’ve started doing some stretches (only for the past 2 days, though). I got a nice massage on Sunday and that helped for about a day and now the pain is back. I’m not sure what else I can do??? I’m hoping the stretching will help some. What do you ladies do or suggest for nursing back pain?

    lan- i am having the same issue with weight loss, i only gained 14 lbs well pregnant and despite bring very active (walking, swimming, chasing after delaney) i am 20lbs more today than the day before giving birth. my dr wants me to have thyroid testes done, and i keep putting it off, and putting it off. i eat very healthy as well, but if i cut my calories in the least bit my supply plummets, so i have just had to except the extra weight until Delaney weans, i still stay active and eat right though.

    noah colts mommy – NO! But many moms do anyways. The laws haven’t been changed so baby foods will still have 4+ months on their labels. It’s not good for their little bellies! I wish they would change the labels and have more peds tell them the new recommendations. I feel for little guys and gals because their moms don’t know any better. The only time cereal is good for before six months is when there is reflux involved. Then the benefits out weigh the risks. That’s it!

    laquita7 – My doc gave me percocet after my c/s. I took it for 2 days before noticing Alyssa couldn’t even stay awake long enough to nurse. I stopped taking it right away despite dr’s and nurses orders. Tylenol and Motrin worked just fine for me. I so regret taking the harder stuff. I think it’s what caused a lot of our difficulties in the beginnign with breastfeeding. I’m so glad we got over the hump and didn’t give it up.
